investigators went to dorner's mother in orange county. investigators went there to do a search before and left with ten paper bags of items but didn't say what was in them. moments before the cabin caught on fire, there was an intense gun battle between dorner and law enforcement officers. [ sound of gunfire ] >> reporter: before that, dorner also tied up two maids that were inside cleaning a cabin that dorner broke into. dorner then took off in their purple nissan. he later crashed that car and carjacked another person woking at a nearby boy scout camp. he ran into the cabin where he exchanged gunfire with officers. we're hearing from the owner of the cabin for the first time. take a listen. >> that cabin has been used for many things. it was a post office at one point and to see it all go up

the jury deadlocked on three perjury counts. he was charged with lies to the grand jury. there was no verdict on it. he was convicted on obstruction based on an invasive -- evasive rambling answer about whether his trainer injected him with performance-enhancing drugs. >> reporter: how likely do you think that bonds will get this overturned? >> el with, it's difficult to -- well, it's difficult to get a criminal conviction overturned, especially ara jury verdict. it was before a very well low pressured judge judge -- a very bell-respected judge. we have a rambling evasive answer that was probably literally true to questions that bonds answered about a page later in the transcript. >> reporter: talking about greg anderson, specifically, he was bonds' trainer.
did he inject you with somebody? how critical is greg anderson to this entire thing? >> well, there's no question that the government was severely handicapped, likely by not having anderson at trial. he was held in contempt armed spent fight -- contempt and he spent quite a bit of time in jail. they were not able to prove the false statements. so they went to the obstruction charge based on evasive, not necessarily untrue statements. >> reporter: how long will we get an answer? how long before bonds knows. >> probably six months. hard to say. it will be measured in months rather than weeks. >> reporter: william keen, thank you for joining us. taking us through what we can expect today. not a very long hearing. ten-year journey getting us here but months until we'll get an answer. live here in san francisco, claudine wong, ktvu channel 2 news. an east bay mischief that

7:29. theman hunt for california's most-wanted fugitive is apparently over. police believe the charred remains found in a big bear cabin are that of christopher dorner. the associated press reported that investigators found a wallet with his driver's license in the rubble. bob decastro is live in big bear where forensic teams will be combing through that cabin for the next few days. good morning, bob. >> reporter: good morning, tori. with that burned out cabin, it's still very much a crime scene. it's still sealed off.
here's the roadblock about five minutes from the scene. the big question, are those remains that of belonging to the multiple murder suspect, christopher dorner. the a.p. does report there was a wallet found in the basement in that burned out cabin and in that wallet, there was a driver's license belonging to christopher dorner. of course, until an official autopsy is completed, that could be days, even weeks before that is done, there will be no official confirmation as to the identity of that body. now, this all went down yesterday around 12:20 when a stolen vehicle was discovered by fish and wildlife wardens. there was a chase here. there was a wild shootout between fish and game wardens and the suspect. the suspect went into the woods. he barricaded himself inside a cabin here. there was another shootout. two sheriff deputies was shot.
one was killed. another was shot. he's expected to survive. still in the hospital. a ter gas grenade, then launched inside that cabin and that cabin erupted in flames. it burned for several hours and no one ever walked outside or came outside. so they do believe at this point that christopher dorner parished inside the cabin. still waiting for official confirmation from that autopsy. we can tell you as of late last night and even this morning, they were saying it was too hot to go inside the cabin to comb through all of the rubble. obviously, they've had an opportunity to go inside. as you saider other the next coming days, perhaps the next coming weeks, that particular cabin will be a crime scene as they look for evidence. as we wait for the official confirmation from the autopsy and those forensic tests, dna and dental records will confirm whether or not that was, in
fact, the body of christopher dorner. we'll send it back to you. >> all right, bob decastro live in big bear. thank you. one of the people believed to be killed by dorner will be laid to rest this morning. 34-year-old officer michael cain was shot and killed -- michael crain was shot and killed last thursday. thousands are expected to attend the funeral including jerry brown. stay with ktvu and for continuing coverage including a press conference scheduled for 8:00 this morning.

they actually had to detonate a bomb last night and bomb-making materials. that's why you see all of these sandbags on the front lawn because they had to cover it when all of those explosives went off. this house sticks out like a sore thumb on this street. you can see all of the security cameras and antennas. we counted six or seven on the house. that leads a lot of people in this neighborhood to think what was this man really trying to protect. now, chp officers tell us they had been baching the -- watching man who lives in this home. they've identified him as 45- year-old everette basham. officers arrested him in sunnyvale yesterday at one of his relative's home for making a threat against a public official. we don't know when the threat was made who it was specifically against. but it was serious enough for the chp to get a search warrant for his home. officers found bomb-making material inside. the bomb squad and s.w.a.t. team were called in and they dug a hole in the front yard and buried that material and
covered it with sandbags. here's what chp officers told us about the threat that was made and the investigation. >> from what i understand, yeah, it was -- threats were made on a official. and the chp has the responsibility to deal with this if officials receive threats. >> reporter: and they are looking at the numerous surveillance cameras throughout his home and the radio and microwave and antennas. this neighborhood is near kylie boulevard and el camino real. it's a well-kept neighborhood, a lot of well-kept lawns. you will hear more coming up on "mornings on 2." back out here live, you are getting a picture of maybe what was in his backyard. you can see that tank there. we're unsure what that was used for. but officers tell me a little while ago when they did enter the home, you know, it did seem like it was really cluttered.

shops after their taxes were cut. taking a live look at the big board, the dow is down 20. dipping just below the 14,000 mark. >> the nasdaq is up 16 and the s&p up 3. right now, president obama is on his way to asheville, north carolina. he's kicking off a three-day tour to rally support for the economic proposals he unveiled in his state of the union address. >> nothing i'm proposing tonight should increase our deficit by a single dime. it is not a bigger government we need. but a smarter government that sets priorities and invests in broad-based growth. >> jamie dupree joins us via skype from washington, d.c. jamie, i'm curious what kind of reviews are the president getting this morning. >> reporter: it broke down mainly along party lines. the first one of these speeches i did was ronald reagan back in 1987. it's pretty obvious how there's a boilerplate reaction. if you are in the minority, not
in charge of the white house, you shrug your shoulders and say it doesn't meet your expectations. that's what we saw last night. i think the one thing i never would have predicted to be in the speech was the increase in minimum wage the president talked about at $9 at the federal level. the states have different minimum wages. but that was sort of out of left field. certainly the president in the opening sound bite you just placed talking about how his plans would not raise the deficit one single dime. a lot of republicans joking but somewhat serious saying maybe just raise it a couple trillion dimes. a lot of gop lawmakers, they sense the answer is, higher taxes to some things. >> the discussion of gun control. there was a pretty emotional appeal on that issue the president made. let's listen to that sound bite and get your reaction. >> gabrielle giffords deserves
a vote. [ cheers ] >> the families of newtown, connecticut, deserve a vote. [ cheers ] >> the families of aurora deserve a vote. [ cheers ] >> the families of oak creek and tucson and those affected by gun violence, they tee serve a single vote. [ -- deserve a single vote. [ cheers ] >> is that gonna change anything, do you hink -- think. >> he was not saying you have to approve my legislation. he was saying you have to give it a vote. i think the white house and the democrats, they probably behind the scenes decided that if they can just ask for that vote, they can create a little momentum. let's be frank about this. at this point in time, there's not enough votes in the senate to approve an assault weapons ban. the issue of the background checks, that's up in the air as
is the issue of limits on the size of ammunition magazines. i think what the white house strategy is, if they can get it to the floor of the senate, then they open to put a little heat on lawmakers who might be wavering and undecided. opponents of gun control after the speech simply saying the president's remarks didn't make a difference but it's obvious he's gonna carry this fight over the heads of lawmakers into the people. >> final question, about the republican response. marco rubio giving the response. do you think anyone was able to hear the message after that awkward moment where he reached to get a bottle of water? >> reporter: when you do tv, you probably don't want to take a swig of water on the air. i guess i've learned over the air, it was funny because i saw rubio about two hours before doing a dry run. he looked completely relaxed but at the moment, that took away from it. still, the message was there
for republicans. democrats simply are in favor of big government and they are addicted to taxes, is when you basically boil it down. in the end, it may be one of those things we may not remember for very long. and rubio laughing it off. >> you can find a link to jamie's blog on our website. just go to pull down the news men knew bar and go to our -- menu bar and go to our politics page. the cruise ship that became stranded in the gulf of mexico is now being towed to mobile, alabama. the carnival triumph should be docking by tomorrow afternoon. cruise line will pay the cost to fly the 4,000 passengers back to houston. the carnival says until then, the top priority, keeping everybody safe and comfortable. but some passengers are sending text messages to relatives that say carnival cruise line does not seem to be able to do that. >> "stuck in the middle of the

welcome back. i'm tori campbell. >> i'm dave clark. the week-long manhunt for christopher dorner is over. the investigation still very active. this morning los angeles police are holding a news conference. they are at parker center at police headquarters. we're watching it live and there's a spokesman there. let's listen in. >> in any kind of celebration, this really is not a celebration. it's been a very trying time for over the last couple of weeks for all of those involved and all of those families, friends and everybody that's been touched by this dorner incident. so again, i just would like to
express our deepest sympathy from our department and our hearts and prayers go out to those family and friends to those deputies injured and the deputy that was killed yesterday. with that, let meet just give you some brief -- bring you up to date. the investigation into the dorner incidents and the homicides related to christopher dorner continue. and that will continue until the investigators have completed everything they need to do related to that. the task force is still in place. and they will work until there's nothing left to be done. there's still quite a bit of work to be done on this. what transpired in san bernardino is being investigated by the san bernardino county sheriff's department. and so i have no comments on their investigation at this time. i can tell you that the
l.a.p.d. has now moved back into a normal state of police operation. that begun late last night and will continue now as far as normal patrol operations. the protective details, some of those are still in place and those will remain in place until the department and those protectees feel safe. as you know, until that investigation in san bernardino is concluded and we have any type of positive identification on what transpired up there, we still have some individuals in this department who are still in great fear. when your life -- when the lives of your family are placed in jeopardy and threatened with death, that's quite something to deal with. we have approximately a dozen or so of those protected details will replain in place at this point.
all other resources have been returned to their normal functions. the city has not been on any type of tactical alert since early yesterday morning and we will remain in that state tis until further. so at this time, that's about all i have in terms of the investigation. if there are some questions related to the dorner investigation that i'm able to answer -- again, i'm not able to comment on anything related to san bernardino. [the question is inaudible] >> bell, again, we have -- well, again, we have homicide investigations. you know, the fact that the incident transpired yesterday and, you know, we won't won't speculate at this time whether that is christopher dorner or not, but even if it was to be christopher dorner, again, we have a case to close. just because arrest warrants were issued and charges were filed in riverside, there's still a case pending in irvine, the double homicide.
there's still much work to be done. we just don't stop an investigation because the suspected individual may no longer be available. [the question is inaudible] >> i'm -- say that again. >> how long will it take to identify the body found? >> yeah. again, that will depend on the condition of the body that's recovered. it will depend on the forensics available in the laboratories, i will not make any assumptions right now. but again, those types of identifications can be expedited in these types of circumstances. i'm sure everything will be done to do that. [the question is inaudible] >> right now, this is a san bernardino case. the incident that occurred up there, involving the shooting and the body that was discovered will be up --
announced by the san bernardino county sheriffs. [the question is inaudible] >> that will be determined by the city attorneys that are involved. the issuance of a reward is for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of an individual. this is sort of an unusual circumstance. certainly, there was information that was provided that was very beneficial yesterday and that will be examined and evaluated by the people who deal with the rewards. the los angeles police department does not issue rewards. so we're not in the reward business. those are outside entities that issue those rewards in an effort to support the investigation. >> beyond the emotional -- >> we've been listening live to a news conference by the los angeles police department, the very latest on the christopher dorner case. among other things, the investigation continues.
it's not over. it's far from over, including an open-ended homicide investigation, a task force still in place, they will be in place for the time being. the l.a.p.d. itself is returning to a normal operation and they also say that some people who may have been targeted by christopher dorner, they are still being protected out of fear about a dozen people are still being protected. they still have not identified the remains inside that burned cabin up there in big bear. this is still a continuing investigation. make sure you stay right here with ktvu and, of course, for all of the latest information on the christopher dorner investigation. now, ktvu's brian flores is monitoring that news conference. he's in our newsroom right now. and brian, there's more on this situation that you will bring on this. now, we're also following developing news coming from contra costa county. a police officer and a suspect were wounded in a late-night
